Welcome from the Headteacher

Welcome to the website for Vallis First School. I feel very privileged to be leading this amazing school in the beautiful market town of Frome. I started as Headteacher in September 2019 and I am very proud of the happy, safe and purposeful atmosphere in the school that is created by our dedicated and skilled staff team and the great learning attitudes of our children. The school feels like a large family and the strong nurturing and inclusive environment ensures that all our children achieve to the very best of their abilities.

There is a lot of information on our website, but if there are any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to telephone or come in as we will be very happy to help. If you are looking for a school for your child, I would be very pleased to show you around our school so you can see and experience for yourself the unique Vallis First School. Please have a look through the gallery on the web site as this shows the range of learning and enrichment activities that the children experience.
